Re: Battalion 750pts

Yeah I'd suggest taking only one Crisis unit in such a small point list. They're really too expensive and too dependent on the rest of the army to take more than one in small point games. I also wouldn't recommend a full suit list, but if we'd try to enforce such a list you'd need to add Marker Dron...

Re: Effectiveness of EWO

About has 'hard' as a first turn charge out of reserves. Just less common to have that option.
Heldrake would be the first unit to come in mind that does first turn charges regularly.

Re: The Tau Triumvirate

I honestly wouldn't expext a triumvirate at all. That was a Gathering Storm thing and so far exclusive for those books. There are no indications that GW will make other triumvirate boxes.

Re: Effectiveness of EWO

I think the effectiveness of EWO is just an empirical question: Is your enemy going to try and turn 1 charge you with a significant portion of their army (i.e. not like 5 genestealers)? If the answer is yes, its gonna be worth it on the big units. Otherwise probably not. I guess it has some utility...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

2d6 damage wouldn't be the solution though. Just having a single shot is the problem. It was the problem in 7th and is the problem now. Oh, I'm talking about having both abilities. 2D6 damage and two shots. Space Marine Predators have 4d6 potential damage. Leman Russes have 3D6 potential damage, or...

Re: Battalion 750pts

Here's what I would run if only using suits in 750pts it's not great but may be fun and a bit difficult for some armies to deal with at such low points levels ++ Vanguard Detachment +1CP (T'au Empire) [35 PL, 749pts] ++ + HQ + Commander [7 PL, 168pts]: 4x Fusion blaster, MV4 Shield Drone + Elites +...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

It would help to close the gap to space marine tanks but of course wouldn't be enough to close the gap to the other tanks that can double tap now.

Re: First 1000 point list - Special forces theme. How good can it get? :)

Flamer XV8 are definitely viable. Just a bit tricky to use (nothing impossible though). They aren't weapons for Commander though. You'd be wasting their BS2+.

Also congrats to your first game! Sounded like fun despite the Commander&Gun Drone cheese from your partner. :D

Re: Updates to Astra Militarum

Yeah but that costs CP which they then can't use for something else. They could also use their cheap psyker to try and make one of those immune to morale once a turn which would cost another HQ slot though and would require to pass the psychic test and not getting denied. Overall it got nerfed but i...

Re: Battalion 750pts

I don't know if i'm missing something, but here i see a total of 1290 points. 10 fire warriors are worth 80, not 16. Same for pathfinders. Heh, you're right. Didn't even look at the points since I just assume people to use Battlescribe. :D @Ar'Che'R Your Firewarrior and Pathfinder alone would alrea...

War of Secrets

Soooo there's a new book coming featuring T'au. Mainly Dark Angels but they are going up against T'au so it's still relevant I guess. Now to the bad news. It's written by Phil Kelly...again! :dead: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/10/18/new-covers-revealed/ https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com...

Re: Battalion 750pts

Gun Drones and Commander Usual Gun Drones, not Marker Drones? And what upgrades do you use for Commander? Yeah usual Gun Drones. They are more durable, have more utility and provide more damage output than Fire Warrior and cost the same. Commander are variable. Quad Fusion Blaster is the most favor...

Re: Battalion 750pts

Sorry I don't really play such low point games, however what's effective doesn't change when you play lower point games really. Gun Drones and Commander will still be the best thing to bring for us.

And uhm sure, if you want to play non-mechanized Infantry list with some tank support it's okay. Definitely not the strongest list but should do okay in casual games.

Re: Start Collecting box and 4th ed. conversion advice

The Crisis models look differently but are basically the same. The one with more armor plates is supposed to represent the Iridium armor one but that doesn't make any sense since the fluff tells us the Iridium suit isn't any bulkier than the regular Crisis due using a special alloy instead of thicke...

Re: Updates to Astra Militarum

The headline item is going to be that the Commissar no longer works as before - the effect is now to inflict one casualty in order to enable a re-roll. For Conscripts in particular this is a game-changer. Yeah but then again there's a Warlord trait that lets a Commissar, if the re-roll failed as we...
